“During conference information”

As Loic has written that I will do a during podcasting (which I won’t so much),, some people come here for the links. So let me collect what I have found / got mailed to, so the visitors are able to find them.

If you have additional information, please use the contact link on the right, or chat me at _neezee in IRC.

Pre conference closed – post conference opened

Some speakers I did not manage to get on Skype – be it that they never responded, or timing was bad or we could not get together due to different reasons. Which is why I want to do a post conference podcast and would like you as participants to be on as well. :o) Shoot me an email and we will make something work!

On the conference you will be able to get hold of me through IRC under _neezee or through email. As Skype is a P2P application, I will not be running that at the conference. 🙂

Some more podcast to come

Just wanted to inform you that I have still some more podcast in the pipe which will go online later this evening / night and include some very interesting names – in the meantime have fun discovering the other interviews.

I want to podcast from Paris a bit, but would also like to include links to other podcasters from there. When i link to their mp3 file, you would get them downloaded as well – it would be nice to get some feedback on whether this is wanted or not? You can always check the coverage page on the wiki on that.

Btw want to meetup on sunday?
